Modifications of the ovipositor appear to have played a prominent role in defining the host range of parasitoid hymenopterans, highlighting an important contributing factor in shaping their oviposition strategies, life histories and diversification. Despite many comparative studies on the structure of the hymenopteran terebra, little is known about functional aspects of the musculoskeletal ovipositor system. Therefore, we examined all inherent cuticular elements and muscles of the ovipositor of ...

Abstract Light, fluorescence, and electron microscopy were applied to cross sections and -breakage and whole-mount preparations of the anterior hindwing vein of the shield bug Graphosoma italicum . These analyses were complemented by investigations of the basal part of the forewing Corium and Clavus. The integration of structural, histological, and fluorescence data revealed a complex arrangement of both rigid and elastic structures in the wall of wing veins and provided insights into the consti...

The scanning ion conductance microscope (SICM) is a versatile, high-resolution imaging technique that uses an electrolyte-filled nanopipet as a probe. Its noncontact imaging principle makes the SICM uniquely suited for the investigation of soft and delicate surface structures in a liquid environment. The SICM has found an ever-increasing number of applications in chemistry, physics, and biology. However, a drawback of conventional SICMs is their relatively small scan range (typically 100 μm × 10...

Abstract We describe the kinematics and performance of the natural jump in the weevil Orchestes fagi (Fabricius, 1801) (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) and its jumping apparatus with underlying anatomy and functional morphology. In weevils, jumping is performed by the hind legs and involves the extension of the hind tibia. The principal structural elements of the jumping apparatus are (1) the femoro-tibial joint, (2) the metafemoral extensor tendon, (3) the extensor ligament, (4) the flexor ligament,...

A short overview of the evolution of rove beetles is given to introduce to the reader the topics contained in the book. Additional subjects are distribution, behavior, ecology, bioindication, ecomorphology, and development. The morphological diversity of rove beetles is presented based on the diversity of their ecological niches. Representative rove beetles are briefly described in order to illustrate the wide range of their niches with regard to food resources, habitats, and geographic zones.

Current knowledge of the biology of the megadiverse beetle subfamily Steninae is reviewed here with regard to its systematics, general morphology, life history, behaviour, (chemical) ecology and evolution into various ecomorphs. Comprising >3000 species worldwide, the staphylinid genus Stenus is one of the most speciose animal genera on Earth. Steninae are well characterized by a number of adult and larval autapomorphies. Adult Stenus beetles are diurnal, optically oriented, epigeic predators of...
